Students stage protest against SFI in CUSAT over hit-and-run case
Kochi: Students staged a sit-in protest against SFI on the CUSAT campus here on Monday. A car used by SFI leaders had mowed down a student the other day and the students demanded to expel the leaders.
Students boycotted classes and protested against SFI unit president and secretary in front of the administration block.
The students called off the protest after the Vice Chancellor assured action against the accused.
SFI leaders Prajith and Rahul were named as accused in the case. Azil Aboobacker, a student of the campus, suffered injuries after being hit by the car.
Kalamassery police registered a murder attempt case against the SFI leaders over the accident.
A few days back, a dispute broke out between the first year and fourth year students at the men’s hostel on the campus. Though, the dispute was settled, the SFI leaders hit the speeding car on Azil without any provocation. Meanwhile, some students responded that their protest is against the SFI leaders not against the party.
